PyCIRCLean

PyCIRCLean is the core Python code used by CIRCLean, an open-source USB key and document sanitizer created by CIRCL. This module has been separated from the device-specific scripts and can be used for dedicated security applications to sanitize documents from hostile environments to trusted environments. PyCIRCLean is currently Python 3.3+ compatible. Also, while kittengroomer can run on any platform supported by python-magic/libmagic, filecheck.py has some dependencies that are Linux-only, and running the full test suite will require access to a Linux box or VM.

Installation

python setup.py install

OR

pip install .

How to use PyCIRCLean

PyCIRCLean is a simple Python library to handle file checking and sanitization. PyCIRCLean is designed to be extended to cover specific checking and sanitization workflows in different organizations such as industrial environments or restricted/classified ICT environments. A series of practical examples utilizing PyCIRCLean can be found in the ./examples directory. Note: for commits beyond version 2.2.0 these examples are out of date and not guaranteed to work with the PyCIRCLean API. Please check [helpers.py](./kittengroomer/ helpers.py) or filecheck.py to see the new API interface.

The following simple example using PyCIRCLean will only copy files with a .conf extension matching the 'text/plain' mimetype. If any other file is found in the source directory, the files won't be copied to the destination directory.

#!/usr/bin/env python
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import os
import magic

from kittengroomer import FileBase, KittenGroomerBase, main


# Extension
class Config:
    configfiles = {'.conf': 'text/plain'}


class FileSpec(FileBase):

    def __init__(self, src_path, dst_path):
        """Init file object, set the extension."""
        super(FileSpec, self).__init__(src_path, dst_path)
        self.valid_files = {}
        # The initial version will only accept the file extensions/mimetypes listed here.
        self.valid_files.update(Config.configfiles)

    def check(self):
        valid = True
        expected_mime = self.valid_files.get(self.extension)
        if expected_mime is None:
            # Unexpected extension => disallowed
            valid = False
            compare_ext = 'Extension: {} - Expected: {}'.format(self.cur_file.extension, ', '.join(self.valid_files.keys()))
        elif self.mimetype != expected_mime:
            # Unexpected mimetype => disallowed
            valid = False
            compare_mime = 'Mime: {} - Expected: {}'.format(self.cur_file.mimetype, expected_mime)
        else:
            self.should_copy = False
        if self.should_copy:
            self.safe_copy()


class KittenGroomerSpec(KittenGroomerBase):

    def __init__(self, root_src=None, root_dst=None):
        """Initialize the basics of the copy."""
        if root_src is None:
            root_src = os.path.join(os.sep, 'media', 'src')
        if root_dst is None:
            root_dst = os.path.join(os.sep, 'media', 'dst')
        super(KittenGroomerSpec, self).__init__(root_src, root_dst)

    def processdir(self):
        """Main function doing the processing."""
        to_copy = []
        error = []
        for srcpath in self.list_all_files(self.src_root_dir):
            dstpath = srcpath.replace(self.src_root_dir, self.dst_root_dir)
            cur_file = FileSpec(srcpath, dstpath)
            cur_file.check()


if __name__ == '__main__':
    main(KittenGroomerSpec, ' Only copy some files, returns an error is anything else is found')
